Managing Director, Security and Rights
Corey Saylor is the Managing Director for Security and Rights. In this role, he works with a specialized team of ReThink professionals to protect human and civil rights in a post-9/11 world. He has spent over 20 years in non-profit advocacy working on political communications, media relations and combatting anti-Islam prejudice in the United States.
He has appeared on news outlets ranging from Fox News to CNN, the BBC, the New York Times and Al Jazeera. He has run successful advocacy campaigns holding major companies such as Burger King, American Express and Bell Helicopter-Boeing accountable for their corporate policies as well as combatting anti-Islam legislation nationwide and removing biased and inaccurate materials from law enforcement counterterrorism trainings. Corey has also authored a number of reports documenting anti-Islam sentiment and civil rights issues in the United States. For instance, Confronting Fear, produced in partnership with staff at the University of California, Berkeley, explores the funding and impact of U.S. anti-Muslim groups. Corey has also conducted dozens of leadership, advocacy and media trainings across the United States, including speaking to audiences at NASA, Yale, Princeton, and the U.S. National War College.
Saylor is an avid DC United fan. He reads entirely too many history books and often bores his family with long walks on Civil War battlefields. He is convinced one of his daughters will become President of the United States and the other will win a Nobel Prize. He just cannot decide which one and in what order.
